it started with the fabric

Many projects do...start with the fabric.
For this wall hanging,
I happened to have a charm pack of Give Thanks by Deb Strain for Moda.
You can get a charm pack of Give Thanks HERE, HERE or HERE 

I layed a few pieces on my design wall and pinned it here and there.
Then I went to my EQ program and made the 'block'.
It's a BIG block.
Do you design in EQ or graph paper?
I do both when designing but for this quilt, I just used EQ.

This is a picture of the half square triangle units and stems sewn.

And the completed top.
It's not a great picture, however I can be bad about taking pictures.
I feel lucky I made this many LOL.
It's about 34 1/2" square.
I am taking it to my quilter this weekend...
maybe I will get it back before Thanksgiving???
